Live Phish Vol. 14 was recorded live at the Rosemont Horizon (now the Allstate Arena) in Rosemont, Illinois, near Chicago, on Halloween night, 1995.

It marks the second of five Halloween shows in which Phish dressed up in a "musical costume" by performing an album from another artist in its entirety. The band, along with a horn section, unveiled a complete performance of The Who's Quadrophenia, led by keyboardist Page McConnell, sandwiched in between two sets of Phish's own music. During their performance of "Harpua" Trey Anastasio told the story of Jimmy listening to his favorite album, which happened to be "the very same album that Phish was playing as their Halloween album at Rosemont Horizon that night." At this point they broke into a brief segment of "Beat It" by Michael Jackson, which led to fans believing they were going to play Thriller. They also played a loop of "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" over the PA at the beginning of set two before the ocean sounds of "I Am the Sea" overtook it. At the end of the show, the band encored with "My Generation" and destroyed their instruments just like The Who had done thirty years earlier.

The first set contains one of Phish's best versions of The Divided Sky. As is typical of Fall 1995, Sky's composed section is played perfectly, after which Trey plays a lyrical and crescendo reaching guitar solo which truly would be well suited for a symphonic and/or orchestral transcription. Also of note is a 40-minute version of "You Enjoy Myself" to open the third set.
